Worn in raw denim

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So once your raw denim is worn in with creasmarks / distressing do you guys still wear the jeans or throw them to the back of the wardrobe ? I find once they have that "vintage" look about them i tend to wear them with different colours and they become more versatile than the blank look of raw denim. Interested to hear your views

I wear lots of dry denim and most of my wardrobe is based around that. So, once a pair of jeans has faded to a nice shade of blue, I hardly wear it anymore

I still wear mine, but not as often as their newly acquired raw competitors. I do have an old favorite pair of Levi's 501 that, although I'd like to wear them more often, I refrain from doing so to prevent them from further thinning and fraying. I'd like to keep them around until I retire.

I thought the whole point of raw denim was eventually to get a vintage look with a great personalized fade. Seems counterintuitive not to wear the jeans after you've made it to that point.

The journey is often more interesting than the destination!

the destination is pretty damn good as well! so that tells you how cool the journey is going to be

I use them as knock around jeans for doing shit around the house, washing the car, hiking, etc.

I still wear mine after they've been worn in. I wear the new ones around to school and sometimes going out, but more often I wear the worn in ones when I go out.

I have noticed that my SC1947s I use for knocking around, but my RRDS that are pretty worn in I will wear out to the bars, clubs, nice dinner, etc., I think the levis repros (japanese jeans included) when they are worn in have a more vintage look, which stears me to wearing them for errands, house cleaning, etc, but my Nudies (more modern cut jeans) that are worn in are still considered more of a dress up jean. Maybe it is just me.

I've always wondered about this: As soon as someone breaks in a pair, they are looking forward to their next pair. But the whole point is to fade them well so that they will look cool... I am currently breaking in a pair and I can't wait until they start losing indigo like crazy. After that I'll probably wait a few months before even thinking about a new pair.
Seriously though I plan to wear these jeans for years, pre- and post-wash, just to get back at the kids who laugh at me for buying expensive jeans.
